“Nkulunkulu Wami (My God)” by Young Mbazo & the Durban Baha’i Choir

Baha’i Blog’s “Studio Sessions” is an initiative where we invite Baha’is and their friends from around the world to come into a studio and share the Baha’i Writings put to music.

In this Baha’i Blog Studio Session, we’re in Durban, South Africa with Young Mbazo and the Durban Baha’i Choir singing “Nkulunkulu Wami” in Zulu, which means “My God”, and which is based on the Writings of Baha’u’llah.
